Risks and unintended consequences
The impact of the Rudd government's announcement of an additional 40 per cent tax on mining is starting to be felt across the community.   As share prices fall, investors withdraw capital, our international reputation is tarnished, projects are suspended or cancelled and jobs are lost, the mining industry is reeling in disbelief from the Rudd government's attack on one of the most important sectors of the Australian economy. It's the resource industry's equivalent of a drive-by shooting. Kevin Rudd said that it would stimulate more investment, grow the mining sector and be good for the economy.

US college degrees: Still the best among world's top universities?
NEW YORK — Ross Forman is one of American higher education's best and brightest. He may also be a canary in its coal mine. Three years ago, he was looking for a university teaching job.

Shelton Stromquist - Department of History - The University of Iowa
Shelton Stromquist works primarily in the fields of U.S. labor and social history, though his research and teaching have taken a comparative and global turn in the last few years. His first book, A Generation of Boomers: The Pattern of Railroad Labor Conflict in Nineteenth-Century America —originally a dissertation directed by David Montgomery at the University of Pittsburgh—examined railroad strikes and working-class community in the “era of Great Upheaval.” That work also led him to an interest in the transformation of working-class political culture during the late nineteenth and early twentieth ...
